In the afternoon a number of members stayed to participate in the 'quilting bee' where we work together as a group on a project. Our current group project is to make 20 panels for a display of our work at next year's International Quilt Festival of Ireland. It was a busy afternoon, tracing around templates, cutting out appliqué pieces. ironing bondaweb in place, cutting wadding and background fabric. But it was worth it....we're on our way to making a special display for next June's festival!
